Excellent Early Season Results in Southampton

Bram Montgomery

A squad of 44 Brompton swimmers from all levels of the club raced over the weekend in the James Moreno Open meet in Southampton. Overall the coaches were very happy with the results as expectations for competitions taking place so early in the season are often low as the swimmers have only been back in the water for a few weeks after a well deserved break over during the Summer holidays. 

Almost 1/3 of all the swims ended up being lifetime bests for our swimmers and we managed to bring home a significant number of medals (52 in total!) leading to a 2nd place finish in the overall club standings. As usual we had a few DQ's so it is important, and this is true for all the swimmers, that we learn from any mistakes and work harder in training so we can continue to get better! 

Special congratulations to Justine and Daniel for each breaking Club Records in the Senior 50m Backstroke events.
